“Sa taumbayan na lang kayo magpaliwanag.”
Army Col. Harold Cabunoc remarked on the photo below of Sarah Elago she shared with a former NPA cadre in his latest FB post.
The guy in the photo is Joy James Saguino aka Ka Amihan, who testified that he personally met Elago in Davao and Cotabato some years back, together with local CPP NPA leaders.
In an FB post with the title, “SARAH ELAGO, BINUKING NG SUMUKONG NPA”, Col. Cabunoc said that indeed a “picture speaks a thousand words.”
Col. Cabunoc added that Elago offered many alibis when confronted with the photo during the senate probe.
“Maraming palusot sa larawang ito na kapiling ni Sarah Elago ang mga NPA.”
Col. Cabunoc mentioned that Ka Amihan, the resource speaker in the senate probe and a former NPA cadre, narrated that Elago personally asked for permission when visiting guerilla bases.
“Pero, ayon mismo kay Ka Amihan, nagpapaalam mismo si Sarah Elago sa liderato ng New People’s Army kung bibisita sa guerilla bases at sa lugar ng baseng masa.”
Col. Cabunoc can’t help but poke fun at Elago’s excuses.
“Ano kaya yon, nangungumusta at nag-account ng mga napasampa nila sa komunistang teroristang grupo?”
Turning serious, Col. Cabunoc said Elago’s vehement denial of having connection with the CPP NPA reminded him of communist party’s dual tactics and went on to explain what he meant.
“Naalala ko tuloy ang istilong DUAL TACTICS ng communist movement—-Merong gumagamit ng legitimate actions (protest rallies, social works, community organizing); at, merong gumagamit ng illegal actions kagaya ng extortion, murder, arson, liquidations. Kaya nga, di nila makondena ang ginagawa ng NPA kasi magkakasama at kaparehas naman ang end states nila!”
Col. Cabunoc shared the defense of Neri Colmenares and pals in light of the testimonies of former senior CPP cadres that Kabataan partylist and the rest of Makabayan bloc are headed by cadre of the CPP.
“Ayon sa mga senior cadre ng CPP na sina Jeffrey Celiz at Noel Legaspi, ang KABATAAN Partylist at mga partylists na nasa Makabayan Bloc ay pinamunuan ng Cadre ng Communist Party of the Philippines. Sagot nina Neri Colmenares, Zarate, Castro, et al ay “RED TAGGING!”.
Col. Cabunoc ended the FB by taking the alibi of the Makabayan bloc with contempt and told them, in an emphatic tone, to explain their case to the public.
“RED-TAGGING. RED-TAGGING. RED-TAGGING. Iyon ang parati nilang pabebeng sagot dyan. Sa taumbayan na lang kayo magpaliwanag.”
